Harlyn Surf School

Set on the golden sands of Harlyn Bay, there can be no better place to learn to surf or to discover the sheer exhilaration of paddleboarding, coasteering or sea kayaking.

We believe in offering you the very best customer service and the highest possible level of surf and watersports tuition. Passionate about the Cornwall surf, Harlyn Surf School is always at the forefront of the surf industry and so it’s no surprise we were one of the first in the UK to launch the world’s fastest growing watersport, Stand up Paddleboarding in 2009. This year sees the launch of our latest activity, coasteering, a fantastic experience scrambling across rocks, exploring nooks and crannies, diving into rock pools and seeing the local wildlife plus we have a great new shop in our unit on the beach and coming very soon online!

We also run amazing surf camps every summer which are incredibly popular with teenagers and children. These are surf courses running over five consecutive days, so you really get a chance to develop your surfing skills. Private, improver and group surf lessons and activities are available so there really is something for everyone! We are really proud to be the first surf school in the UK to be awarded an Adventure Activity Licence as a mark of our good safety management and we are an Academy of Surfing Instructors Accredited surf school --- ASI are the world leaders for surfing education and accreditation. What's more we are a Surf Life Saving GB Lifeguard training centre, one of only a handful in the UK -- so you can be rest assured you will be in safe hands!

Stand Up Paddle

Stand up paddleboard is the hottest new surf related sport. At Harlyn Surf School, we are one of the first surf schools to teach stand up paddle boarding. In fact we are a one of only two centres in the UK offering paddleboarding trainer courses. Cornwall is one of the best locations to discover this new exhilarating experience. Stand up paddleboarding originated in Polynesia and is a favourite with celebrities in California such as Jennifer Aniston and Piers Brosnan. So get on board! Easier to learn than surfing, stand up paddleboard lessons are ideal for non-surfers of any age from 10-70.


For the ultimate adrenaline rush, join us on a coasteering adventure! Coasteering includes a combination of traversing across rocks, wading through rock pools, sea swimming, negotiating rock jumps and exploring caves. There is no better way to get up close and personal with marine life than coasteering. Cornwall has such a beautiful coastline it is fantastic to see it from a different point of view, explore nooks and crannies and experience the rise and fall of the ocean.
